Wow... it's maps like this that make me wish I had a decent graphics card. If you are one of the unlucky ones (like me) that have to suffer with a bad graphics card, you will probably want to steer clearof this map. The reasons for the low FPS in this map are 1) The Fog covers the whole map, and 2) there are a ton of large tree models. This causes some serious strain on the graphics card, but I must say it does look quite cool.
The map is supposed to be a river base in Vietnam. Rather than music, you are treated to the soothing sounds of jungle effects: trees rustling in the wind, crickets, etc. The only thing missing is the sound for the gentle rain that is falling. The author designed this map mainly for gunplay. There really is no large, open space for a saber fight, all space is occupied by hills, trees, water, or ruins of buildings that provide good cover in a gun fight. I personally have always loved guns more than sabers, but JA just does not do a really good job with guns, so fighting someone with them is just annoying (because of force, everybody just jumps around like a rabbit on steroids, and you can't hit anything at all unless you are using a weapon with a blast radius).
I really like this map, but I would suggest to the author that his next map doesn't put so much strain on the graphics card next time ;).
Bottom Line A good-looking map, but comps with bad graphics cards will have some FPS trouble in this map. New Textures: Yes New Music: Yes (Jungle sounds, not actually music hehe.) Bot Support: Yes

Vietnam - Kampong Cham - River Crossing Camp by Jenova*Rebirth* Installation :- Place the Kampongcham_JR.pk3 in your game data/base fodler Info :- New music : Yes New textures : yes Details:- This map is based in vietnam at a river crossing in kampong cham This is ment for no force weapons only and really suits the mercs in JA+ There is a river crossing obviously with a few bridges as meanS to get from grass bank to grassy bank, Guard towers outline the area with broken walls placed in area's for cover and sniper positions. There are 2 med packs and 1 small sheild under each guard tower. There is one hidden large sheild in the map but thats upto you to find. This map has music but its more just a vietnam jungle ambience which I thought did it better justice than some upbeat war music or silly jungle music related theme. Weapons are placed accross the map with ammo in the vacinity of each. There is alot of cover such as tall grass to hide in and take your aim at the enemy from within or broken walls and guard towers. There is also a broken building with 2 entrances for cover and yes there is alot of tree's but dont worry fps does'nt really suffer to much as its a small close quarters map. If you were hoping for a clear shot on your enemy well unlucky because its a very foggy rainy area. This doesnt stop you sniping people in the distance it just stops you seeing every one so easily that you could hit the kill limit in a quick time and it also helps to add mood to the fact that someone could be crouching up behind you to take you out without you even noticing them coming your way.
